St Etienne happy to delay Spurs, Arsenal choice for Saliba

St Etienne have welcomed interest from Tottenham for William Saliba.

The defender is a priority target for Arsenal, though Spurs are now threatening their plans after making a formal move last week.

RMC says Saliba has no preference and ASSE are happy for the defender to take his time over his choice.

Indeed, the Ligue 1 outfit are keen to delay things in the hope of an auction being sparked.

ASSE had been willing to sell Saliba to Arsenal for €30m, but the Gunners' dithering has opened the door for Spurs plus the chance for the player to leave for a bigger price.
